out of washington, dc, and especially from president obama, is a very schizophrenic political game. if you understand the whole idea about sequester came from the white house, and we know that for a fact because according to the press secretary, according to senator bachus and bob worldy, and then in 2011 said he would veto any plan to avoid the sequester. and then in 2012 he said the sequester could not happen. now he comes back from playing golf with tiger woods, he has his conference and starts with the fear mongering and the threats. it's very simple, neil. there are two pieces of legislation that will replace the sequester with very real spending cuts that we passed last year in the house of representatives, hr5652 and hr6684. but you also talk about something that we all must realize. until we move away from the baseline budget system where we have an increase and basically talking about cutting the increase, we'll never get to the real problem in wbc. >> when i looked at what the republican strategy was on this, sit this out, wait the president out, continue with their vacat

games are what washington is all b. president obama has proved himself very good to play this game. he has a strong hand right now. in the current situation with the $16 trillion in debt both republicans and democrat vs. plenty of blame. but it's kind of unusual in this particular case to have president obama complaining about the sequester, since bob woodward's book clearly pins the impetus for the sequester on the white house. the white house came up with this back before the election, because president obama really didn't want to have another big fight about the debt ceiling and everything and he wanted to give some sort of cuts to republicans in order to get past the election. and then he succeeded and here we are now where these cuts are about to take effect. we've kicked the can down the road a couple of times now, and now that he's securely reelected he really doesn't want to have these cuts go into effect. and he's desperate to find some other way of lessening the concerns of republicans who are very concerned about the exploding costs of the government. jon: if both sides agre
